A wonderful week…

This week in Class 6, we have been reading the story ‘Beegu’ and spent lots of time comprehending and inferring the text. Today, we got to read the complete story and create some Talk4Writing symbols in collaborative groups. The children thoroughly loved the book and worked brilliantly sharing beautifully together.

The children in my phonics group have been working so hard this week on reading and writing words with the zz, ch, qu and ur digraph. They have particularly loved hunting outside for words, finger writing with paint and even writing on the carpet in chalk. Keep up the hard work! ๐Ÿ™‚


This week started off with a fun filled crafting afternoon with our families. A huge thank you to parents and carers who brought in lots of boxes for junk modelling landmarks in Thorne.

In just 1 hour some amazing models were made and are now proudly displayed down the KS1 corridor. We hope you enjoy looking at them as much as the children (and dare I say parents a little more…) did making them!

We’re Hooked!

It’s been a wonderful few days so far of ‘Hook Week’. Here are some of the things Class 6 have been getting up to…

Here are the children 5 minutes in to the day on Monday morning enjoying our new Thorne Park themed reading area.

Here we are on Monday making lists about what is in Thorne Town.

Yesterday, the children got a little sticky and made lolly stick houses for them to display their family portraits.

Who’s excited for a new term? I am!

What a wonderful end to our first term in Year 1. We saw 2017 out with a bang by partying with Father Christmas, giving 100% effort in our Christmas play and finally enjoying decorating gingerbread men and sipping chocolate milk on the last day.

I hope you have all had a wonderful break and I really look forward to seeing you all next week.


Happy New Year! I can’t wait to see what 2018 brings for Class 6.

Christmas with the Aliens…

I’m so incredibly proud of these children. They have all worked to hard to learn the songs, actions, dances and lines for our Christmas play. I’m getting very excited for our final 2 performances tomorrow and know the children will all shine like stars!

A big thank you to all parents and carers for your support with the wonderful costumes. They all look fantastic! ๐Ÿ™‚


Fabulous Phonics

In KS1 we teach phonics every day to support our children with their reading and writing skills. This week we have been learning the wh, ey, ew and oe digraphs.


I wonder if you could practice reading and writing words with these digraphs in at home…

wh – when, why, what, who, where

ey – money, donkey, valley, honey, turkey

ew – new, crew, blew, knew, pew

oe – toe, foe, sloe


Ryan and Faith worked so hard today and were able to put their new learnt words into sentences. Well done! ๐Ÿ™‚
